Warner Bros. Entertainment is taking over Bayfront Park with a colorful assortment of characters and blown-up replicas of Beast Boy, Cyborg, Raven, Robin and Starfire from Teen Titans Go! Each figure measures between 17-30 feet tall.

Additionally, there will be a The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey life-size Lego model of Bag End, and life-size Lego models of Batman, Robin, and the Joker on display.

Scooby Doo’s Mystery Machine will be parked on the lawn for all to see, and there will also be a live DJ performing Thursday – Thursday.

BURBANK, Calif. (July 16, 2013) — Warner Bros. Entertainment takes over the grounds at San Diego’s Bayfront Park throughout Comic-Con International: San Diego 2013 to prove the pop culture convention isn’t just for big kids — there’s tons of family fun to be had (for free!) with wee ones, too. Popping up a colorful assortment of characters and replicas from Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Warner Bros. Pictures, the free and fun “Lawn Con” — located just steps from the convention floor, between the San Diego Convention Center and the Hilton San Diego Bayfront hotel — will be open to the public from Thursday, July 18–Sunday, July 21, and will boast some of the biggest Titans at SDCC … literally.

  • Fans can see how they measure up next to gigantic blown-up versions of Beast Boy, Cyborg, Raven, Robin and Starfire — ranging from 17–30 feet tall! — from the hit Warner Bros. Animation series Teen Titans Go! (Tuesday nights at 7:30/6:30c on Cartoon Network).
  • As seen in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, fans can visit a life-size LEGO® model of Bag End, Bilbo Baggins’ underground home, complete with characters Gandalf, Dwalin and Bilbo, himself, among others. To see the making of these life-size builds, click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg_CFCkXy4o. [The Hobbit Trilogy is a production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM).]
  • DC Comics fans won’t want to miss the chance to stand side-by-side life-size LEGO® models of the Dynamic Duo — Batman and Robin — as well as Super-Villain, The Joker, on display.
  • Scooby-Doo and the Gang wouldn’t be able to solve half as many mysteries without the reliable Mystery Machine to transport them from town to town … and it’ll be parked on the lawn for all to see!
  • Also on the lawn is a family picnic area with bench seating, providing the perfect spot to kick back and grab a snack, day or evening (with lighting for night).
  • Plus, groove to the sounds of a live DJ, sponsored by Eventmaker! Different DJs will be performing Thursday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m., and Sunday, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Fans and their families can visit the “Lawn Con” displays each day throughout Comic-Con in Bayfront Park’s grassy expanse behind the convention center.

    last year was awesome with the batman cars. saw the 2 stars of arrow interviewed with about 10 other people, and than the two producers of ‘the big bang theory’ chatted with the crowd for about 1/2 an hour (much better than the panel, as these guys are the geeks on that show). also got to play ‘chuck’ in the chuck christmas ep re-enactment. good times….

    Rats, was really hoping for a return of the EW/Extra stage with the interviews and such… guess not :(
